Join a trio of Mexican banditas in Pistoleras, a wild west themed video slot powered by Microgaming. Sharp shooting can lead to big rewards in the pick me style Saloon Bonus with plenty more loot on offer in the free spins feature where all payouts are trebled. Play from between 25p and £250 per spin.

Pistoleras is a fine looking game – the visuals bring to mind a classic spaghetti western and have a definite Mexican tinge. Joining the stylised playing card values are the trio of gun-toting Pistoleras. They’re joined by the Pistoleras logo which is the wild and substitutes for all other symbols apart from the scatter. Whenever the wild makes up part of a winning combination, that payout is trebled.

This western adventure comes with 2 main bonus offerings. First up is the Saloon Bonus feature which is triggered by landing the sack of money scatter on reels 3, 4 and 5. You’ll then be taken into a saloon bar filled with 20 targets, behind which are hiding the 3 Pistoleras – start picking. Match 3 of the same symbol to win a prize. A wild substitutes for any symbol – match 3 wilds and you’ll win all the character payouts on offer.

The other extra is a Free Spins feature which is triggered by landing the stagecoach scatter – 3, 4 or 5 of them will get you a payout of 2, 10 or 100 times your total stake as well as 15, 20 or 25 free spins. Throughout the free spins, all 3 Pistoleras can land as fully stacked on any reel.

Better still is the fact that all wins during the feature are boosted by a 3x multiplier and trebled. You can re-trigger more free spins too with up to 50 free spins up for grabs. It’s also possible to trigger the Saloon Bonus feature from here too.

This isn’t a particularly volatile video slot as the variance here is low – you’ll get plenty of value for your play here making it a good choice for newbie players. Big wins aren’t out of the question though, especially in the free spins feature where a good combination of high value stacked symbols and multiplier can reap impressive rewards.

Well-designed and offering a nice range of features, Pistoleras is an enjoyable game to play. It may not be quite volatile enough for some tastes but we’re more than happy to recommend this trip south of the Rio Grande. If you like the Wild West, I highly recommend NetEnt’s Dead or Alive which is very high variance.
